Background

Firefox 3 includes extra UI to convey information about a site’s identity. When a site uses SSL to encrypt communications, the user can choose to have a portion of the site’s URL emphasized in the UI. This preference determines how much of the site’s domain to display to the left of the URL in the Location Bar. Support for this preference is removed in Firefox 15.
